Sleeps: 2

The clear aqua blue water of Nokomis Beach and Casey Key stretches out on a shelf into the Gulf of Mexico, inviting long, easy walks into the water before you stretch out for a swim. The extraordinary, bright white sand is almost completely quartz crystal. As such, it maintains a constant cool temperature and is the softest powder imaginable.

Nokomis has 14 miles of white sandy beach! The Nokomis Beach and Park is comprised of 22 acres with 1,700 feet running alongside the Gulf of Mexico, and 3,200 feet along the Intra-coastal Waterway. This area is known for its stunning white sand beaches that are ideal for shelling and beach combing. All types of other beach activities are available such as swimming, diving, fishing and boating. Nokomis Beach has lifeguards, free parking, concessions, restrooms and picnic tables. It is Sarasota County’s oldest public beach and is located on Casey Key just west of the Albee Road Bridge.

A short 3 - 5 minute drive from the Nokomis Historic District that Includes four antiques shops and four restaurants (Evergreen Cafe, Curry Creek Cafe, Captain Eddie’s Seafood, Bayside Grille.) We are just 3 short miles from historic downtown Venice, with all its 1920s charm and fun shopping and dining.

An Ecoturism Paradise
Just 1.5 miles to the clean white sands of Nokomis beach, so load the car up with our snorkels, beach chairs and cooler and make a day of it, walking the sands and sea oats of Casey Key, or stroll to the Venice Jetty to people-watch and check out the fishing. We have several other fabulous beaches nearby, as well.

Take a bike ride on the 15-mile long Legacy Bike Trail extending all the way to Venice Beach. Enjoy a picnic under the spreading oaks at Nokomis Community Center. Walk a block to Pocono Trail Preserve where you can bird watch and see Florida wildflowers, or take a guided nature tour. You're just four and half miles from Oscar Scherer State Park, great for bicycling, canoing or kayaking, plus we're a short drive to the scenic Myakka River.

There are two "Paw Parks" located just minutes from Moon Dreams Cottage:

A great place to stay!
My husband and I needed a little pied à terre for a month, and were just delighted with this little home. The owners were most welcoming, and the property manager very pleasant to deal with. The cottage is equipped with everything one needs for a short vacation. I'd say the only inconvenience was not having a laundry on site, but if one plans for this, the issue is a minor one. The cottage is well located close to grocery stores, restaurants and golf courses, and we loved it! We'll definitely consider staying there again.

Quiet and comfortable
We stayed from January through March at Moon Dreams Cottage. It is only a mile and half from Nokomis Beach in which we took full advantage. My husband also fished the Intra-coastal and caught several fish. Venice is just a short distance away and we visited their restaurants and attractions. The cottage is very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. All around the cottage are trees and foliage and I think something new bloomed each week. Beth at Kalypso Bay and the owners of Moon Dreams went out of their way to help us have an enjoyable time on our first time visit to the area.
